Haploids (Gymnosperms)

Chapter
Part of the Forestry Sciences book series (FOSC, volume 24-26)

Abstract

In vitro culture of male and female gametophytes of gymnosperms is generally carried out with two objectives in mind. The first, the historic one, is to follow the development of a single microgametophyte in vitro. The slow development and inaccessibility of the microgametophyte make it difficult to study in situ.
